Publications

I’m a Postdoctoral fellow in operational research and artificial intelligence at the University of Toronto. My research interests include combinatorial and multiobjective optimization, machine learning, data science and big data analytics, and (meta)simulation for real-life problems solving and uncertainty management.

I’ve been working on a variety of applications from robotic to marketing all of which involved managing the problem’s complexity to obtain practical solutions in a reasonable time-frame. I’m interested in Markov chains and stochastic processes which I applied to search and rescue and detection search problems jointly with combinatorial and multiobjective optimization techniques. I’m also interested in machine learning which enable us, for instance, to foresee the production resulting from the transformation of the raw matter at a given plant (e.g., from logs to lumbers).
